With a symbol of the scales in the zodiac, the sign of Libra is the sign of justice, balance and harmony. That is why Libra’s are natural peacekeepers.
Libra’s are born between September 23rd and October 22nd. The seventh sign in the astrological zodiac, the Libra is also the only sign that is not represented by an animal. Libra’s are highly intuitive, although they often ignore their own inner voice and must live with the regrets of such actions.
The Libra is an air sign, falling under the rule of the planet Venus.
Character and Personality
As the scales would suggest, a person born under the sign of Libra seeks balance. Libra’s are often drawn to the underdog, or underdog causes. They are quite willing to stand alone against injustice, but prefer to be part of the group. They seek out happiness in people and places, choosing to be surrounded by positive feelings whenever possible.
The Libra is a good judge of character when they listen to their instincts. A Libra will hold a great deal of their feelings inside and therefore must be drawn out when forming friendships or romantic relationships. A Libra’s trust is earned, not given. The balance to the introverted nature of the Libra’s emotional substance is their willingness to meet new people and try new things. However, even the most outgoing and charismatic Libra is still holding a little back.
Libra’s are naturally empathetic, easily able to view another person’s point of view to understand where he or she is coming from. This not only makes them warm and caring in personal relationships, but many Libra’s use this natural ability to their advantage in the business world.
The balance to being business savvy is creativity. In the workplace, Libra’s are often problem solvers thanks to their sense of creativity and broad perspective. They are often able to see solutions where others only see problems.
At home, the Libra’s creative side often shows itself in unsuspecting ways. Meticulously decorated homes, color coordinated closets or intricate attention to details at the place settings for a dinner party are how a Libra’s creativity shines through. On the other end of the scales, some Libra’s engross themselves in clutter and chaos, which, ironically, is also an expression of a creative mind. Therefore, Libra’s often have messy homes, causing them to appear lazy.
Natural diplomats, feisty and friendly, the Libra’s natural need for balance can sometimes leave them indecisive or at odds with others. However, they make good friends, and their sense of objectivity makes them great co-workers.
